not witty, but in this age of the internet, it's hard to believe a CONCERNED family member has not located the deceased. So what if some people here give witty answers?
OD should lighten up, imo. I think as a whole, our nation is too obsessed with funerals & dead bodies. When you die, the spirit leaves the body and the useless dead flesh to rot. I'm concerned with the living and I'll be grateful when I'm dead -then, the real journey begins imo.

Lighten up? Wow. Gee, thanks for setting me straight.

Sorry that death doesn't bother you. I sincerely hope that it doesn't bother you when you meet it.

What I have learned from this is that the hard core group of fanatics who cannot get past the overplayed Wilfred jokes really are a contentious bunch of assholes who need to get lives outside this board.

Lighten up? Really cosmic dickhead--I'm outta here.



Your oh-so clever replies will be lost on me. I'd have to read them. Not gonna bother.

As Bobby said last year: see ya. It's been thrills, kids, but I'm going to back to the grown up world.

cmon - calm down. I certainly didn't mean to start something up that would have you leave the forum - I've watched you enjoy it to much over the past several months.
It's not a place (almost nowhere is imo) to pass moral judgements.

Just to add fuel on the indignant fire, if you are a "believer" then how can you "know" death is the beginning? Aren't you merely operating on hope/faith? I sincerely hope you're right, and that there is more to this game than food for the worms, but how can anyone "know" what happens once you slip this mortal coil?

2000 years and he ain't been back yet . . .

faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen-imo.
Just simple faith and belief my friend....as you have yours. I see dead people everywhere, killing the born and unborn at their whim. I hope someone does find out who the person was in dancingbears post, I'm just not concerned about the culture of death and "The American Way of Death"
(great book).

Removing posts is cowardly. Think BEFORE you type....AND LEAVE IT ON!

My 2 cents.

Whole-lot made of very little. Sorry to see this group fraying at the edges.

It just may be time to fade-away....

The one's who I care for have my email....

Completely endorse that sentiment, High Flow. But I'm going to stick around for a while - bullshit detector at the ready and cold water bucket ready to be applied... Stay with it if you can.

removal may be cowardly, others have different reasons, not meaning to offend, yet being misunderstood, thus removing them. A few months ago there was an email campaign to have me join some to stonewall a poster here and i refused. Don't like a poster? Don't read 'em! Or have a snit and run away.
My idea of a funeral is sharing great memories and a celebration of a continued life in a better place, then a standing ovation.(A good Irish Wake comes to mind). Respect my "take" on life and "death". If that makes me a cosmicdickhead, so be it. Those who care have my email addy also.

Hey Cosmic - Cowardly is a strong word, I know. I just feel that each of us KNOWS that these posts are for public consumption. So, each of us must keep that in mind while posting here.

Removing posts is like putting your foot in your mouth. However, in real-life, when we put foot-in-mouth, generally we end up red-faced, and based on that feeling of embarassment, we refrain from making such comments again.

Here, instead of being humble and choosing words carefully, some shit all over the page, then, after the haze of intoxicants has lifted, come-in and delete their rambling rants.

In the mean time, others are reading this stuff and getting their dander-up over something even the poster doesn't believe in! Otherwise there would be no call for deletion. Right?

Hey Charlie, I don't disrespect what you say or what you believe. But I do agree with HighFlow that removing posts is wrong - it's a kind of censorship even if self-imposed, and it doesn't help to further the discussion. If someone says they think you were wrong about something, there are basically two things you can do, agree with them or tell them to shove it and give reasons why.

Agree with you about the Irish wake - three days of singing and carousing and making one hell of a racket just to make sure that the dear departed really has departed. That's the way to do it!
